Jason Bay was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. I didn’t know such a thing existed, but it does. Bay hit 222 home runs and was a career .266 hitter. That’s exactly what I think would get you into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. Bay was born in British Columbia.
There are currently 11 active Major League Baseball players who are from the Great White North. 11! That's it.
You know who else is in the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame? Jackie Robinson. He briefly played with the Montreal Royals, a AAA affiliate of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Tommy Lasorda is in. Lasorda played one year for the Schenectady Blue Jays of the Canadian–American League. What’s the issue here? Neither of them is Canadian!
What’s the criteria to get into this place? I once owned an Expos hat. I’ve been to a Tim Hortons. I played pond hockey last week! Can I get in?
This isn't the first time something like this has happened. Jameson Taillon, who was born in Florida and played his high school baseball in Texas, was poached for the Canadian World Baseball Classic team.
WE MUST TAKE A STAND! Baseball is 'MERICA'S past time!
The United States should open up a USA Hockey Hall of Fame and induct all of the Canadian players who played in the states!! Hah, that will show them.
Better yet, we should build a wall at the northern border and make Canada pay for it.
